Event Description

Over the past year, the teaching and learning environment at UBC Okanagan has been uncertain as faculty and students dealt with ongoing global pandemic and its impact on our ability to teach in-person. This uncertainty was exacerbated by the impact on students and instructors of the previous 18 months of teaching and learning remotely. In Fall 2021, faculty anecdotally reported that they felt that student attendance and engagement was different than previous years. So at the end of the Fall and Winter semesters, we have surveyed faculty from across campus to explore their perceptions of student engagement, preparedness, and attendance. This session will feature a presentation of the results from both iterations of the survey, followed by faculty panelists reflecting on their experiences from the past year, and approaches they’ve adopted to enhance student engagement.
